We are strategic advisors and partners to nonprofit organizations, working with our clients to identify opportunities and incubate the ideas and processes that lead to change, innovation, and growth.
For many of our clients, philanthropic revenue it is the lifeblood of the organization. But many organizations typically rely on a handful of tried and true strategies: a gala, a year-end direct mail letter, grants, and maybe a handful of large gifts. And some have engaged in the periodic capital or endowment campaign.
We’ve developed a comprehensive assessment methodology that a data-centric approach to understanding the effectiveness of your past development strategies, and extensive interviewing to begin to uncover areas of growth. We then turn that into a comprehensive narrative that focuses not only on history, but presents concrete ideas for how to grow philanthropy in the future.
Research shows that nonprofits that design and execute annual fundraising and donor stewardship plans are those that raise more money.
We love working with our clients to develop those plans. And if needed, we’ll stick with you to guide execution. We also offer a host of implementation services including copywriting, design, grant writing, and prospect research.
We have deep experience in designing and managing capital and endowment campaigns. Our range of services including creating a case for support; designing and executing feasibility studies; campaign structure and design, and ongoing moves management, prospect strategies, and coaching.
The success of any organization starts with effective volunteer leadership. We offer our clients a range of services including strategic planning; facilitation of board retreats; coaching on board development, and review of governance and policy documents.
Say the word “brand” and people often think “logo.” It’s much more than that. Brand really refers to your organization’s DNA. What is your promise to your constituents? How do you deliver on that promise? How do your constituents experience your organization? How do you make sure those are aligned, and how do you best communicate that to the world?
Through our long-term strategic partnership with Mok2, we help you understand your organization’s DNA, and provide insight, strategy and creative solution design. We help clients to bring ideas or services to their constituents by providing them the tools needed to visualize their ideal future and to make it happen.
Sometimes, all an organization needs is an outside perspective. We offer customized training programs for boards, staff and volunteers, as well as coaching services for board chairs, executive directors, and senior development staff.
Most organizations are well served by a solid strategic plan that guides their work. We’ve got the experience to partner on these comprehensive planning processes.
